The Former Destiny’s Child member who was recently engaged to Pastor Chad Johnson, has been flooded with social media love and messages of support after she tweeted out a message about her personal battle with depression and sought inpatient help at a Los Angeles facility.
Williams has been open about her mental health struggles, that she said started when she was 13 years old and last week tweeted out a message to inform fans of her most recent setback that caused her to seek help.
“For years I have dedicated myself to increasing awareness of mental health and empowering people to recognize when it’s time to seek help, support and guidance from those that love and care for your wellbeing,” she tweeted to fans Tuesday.
“Today I proudly, happily and healthily stand here as someone who will continue to always lead by example as I tirelessly advocate for the betterment of those in need,” she concluded.
Last year Williams made an appearance on The Talk to discuss her past battles with depression, and she admitted that her depression eventually turned suicidal thoughts after Destiny’s Child disbanded.
She then spoke to her own experience suffering from depression, saying that when she told her manager, Mathew Knowles, she was depressed, he waved her off, pointing out the multimillion dollar deal Destiny’s Child had just signed.
“I’m in one of the top-selling female groups of all time, suffering with depression,” she said on The Talk.
“When I disclosed it to our manager [Mathew Knowles] at the time, bless his heart, he was like, ‘You all just signed a multi-million dollar deal. You’re about to go on tour. What do you have to be depressed about?” she recalled.
